 Hi Michelle, welcome to the forum.

Like you I think we all start with a bit of trial and error, mostly error!!

Ask any questions you like, there is always someone who knows the answers.

These are the old type, very slow growing process from seeds, but they were my collected seeds from last year so I know they wouldn't be infected.

these are the New Guinea strain, growing inside a very hot conservatory in full sun all day.

I don't think I will bother to take cuttings, they are so cheap to buy and all my greenhouses are taken up with seedlings now for next years perennials.

photo has come out very distorted!!!

Enhancing a cemetery location

Posted: 06/08/2015 at 09:29

Please bear in mind that you could plant and then go back to find the whole lot mowed or strimmed flat.

It depends whether you are talking about a cemetery or a churchyard, the council maintain the cemetery, the churchyards usually by anyone they can get to cut the grass.

In our area, in the churchyards, planting is not allowed more than 9inches from the stone, so that is the base or foundation, which will probably include a metal flower pot.

Cemeteries are a bit more lenient, but it depends on the contractors. They have to get the job of grass cutting done quickly and sometimes they just mow over it all.

Would you not consider just taking flowers weekly and planting a nice shrub in the garden for rememberance.

Also, if you wish to put a Christmas wreath there, only ever use a foam base, never the wired moss type. The wire will rust and that will absorb into the stone.

If you want to save seed you will have to leave them to ripen on the plants, if not chuck em out.

Tomatoes

Mine are late but then I didn't sow till mid March.

The best for me is to sow is mid January then they are ready for the June sun, which is the best time for here where I live.
